Lady And Gentlemen - LeAnn Rimes lyrics

16 Tons
LeAnn Rimes Song Lyrics

Artist: LeAnn Rimes
Album: Lady And Gentlemen (2011)




Some people say a man is made outta mud
A poor man's made outta muscle and blood
Muscle and blood, skin and bones
A mind that's a-weak and a back that's strong

You load sixteen tons, what do you get
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go
I owe my soul to the company store

I was born one mornin' when the sun didn't shine
I picked up my shovel and I walked to the mine
I loaded sixteen tons of number nine coal
And the straw boss said 'well, a-bless my soul'

You load sixteen tons, what do you get
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go
I owe my soul to the company store

If you see me comin', better step aside
A lotta men didn't, a lotta men died
One fist of iron, the other of steel
If the right one don't a-get you
Then the left one will

You load sixteen tons, what do you get
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go
I owe my soul to the company store
